Pets Gone Wild

Pets Gone Wild is a local pet store that specializes in reptiles as well as rescueing. They do all their educational programs for free. Clint the owner is very knowledgable about alot of animals. He introduced to us, snakes, lizards, spiders, and hissing cockroaches. The kids had a great time. Everyone got to touch and hold. Clint spent about 2 1/2 hours with our group. We are so thankful for him.
Annabelle the Burmese Python.

Frank - Frank doesn't know he is a lizard. Clint has to spell L.I.Z.A.R.D. when he speaks about him because Frank thinks he is a puppy.

It was a really good afternoon. We buy all our pet food from him and support him totally. Anytime we are studying something that he has in the store he invites us for a closer look. To top things off he was also once a science teacher.

Oh. My. Heart. There is no way I would let a snake slither around any part of me.

I gasped when I saw the spider, and I passed out when I saw the scorpion. :::fans self::: The guy and his store are neat, though. And how wonderful of him to share his expertise with y'all.

This looks like a really neat field trip. What a great resource to have when you are studying things too!

The spider though - eek!!!
